I have had incredible journey at the Pike County YMCA! I started back in 2007 as a childcare teacher and have since taken on various roles, ultimately becoming the Membership Director. My passion for the Y shines through, and I love my role there. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, farming, riding side by sides, and embracing the country life. Being a proud mother to Maraya and McKenzie, as well as a blessed grandmother to Avery and Hunter, brings so much joy to my life.
